“LaStel­lina Rosato is a blend of Caber­net Franc, Mer­lot and San­giovese, pro­duced by La Stella Win­ery in the south-cen­tral Okana­gan Val­ley, out­side the town of Osoy­oos. Sus­tain­ably farmed and fer­mented in small batches, this rosé is deep-coloured and served cold; it is a de­li­cious wine for those lazy pa­tio days. The dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties are blended to­gether us­ing a tech­nique called Saignee (a French term mean­ing lit­er­ally “to bleed”) pro­duc­ing a richer and more con­cen­trated wine. “This is an ex­cel­lent wine to be en­joyed with spicy foods or on its own. I love the taste of this wine. It has ex­cel­lent bal­ance and a touch of resid­ual sugar. The ad­di­tion of es­tate-grown San­giovese (think Chi­anti in Italy!) makes it an ideal choice that suits our menu per­fectly. Cin Cin!” Visit lastella.ca.
